Join us for very special Nerdist Channel tapings of Set List: Standup Without a Net! See it at NerdMelt Showroom first by being a part of the moment at this LIVE taping!

From the minds of Paul Provenza and Troy ConradSet List is back from sold-out shows at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Montreal Just For Laughs Festival, and a regular run in London. Top comics are given a never-before-seen “setlist” of strange and outrageous topics the second they walk onstage, and perform seamlessly as if its the act they normally do, while the audience follows their list on the projection screen. Complete comedy in the moment.

7 pm: Featuring the never before seen set lists of Dan LevyNick ThuneBrendon WalshGreg ProopsMike McShaneJon DalyGreg FitzsimmonsIliza Shlesinger, and Dave Ross!

September 1st at 8pm it’s Harmontown!

Harmontown NerdMelt Showroom

What is Harmontown? It’s awesome. It’s unique. It’s one of a kind. It’s something only Dan Harmon (creator of Community and the upcoming Rick and Morty) and Jeff B. Davis (Whose Line is it Anyway) can do. It’s a different show every time and it’s every week. Lucky us! Playing Dungeons and Dragons? It’s happened. Dan Harmon freestyle rapping? Yup, that too. Calling Chevy Chase from stage? Happened…more than once. A celebrity guest? Allison Brie, Donald Glover, and Gillian Jacobs among others have all stopped in. Getting super personal with an intimate audience? Always. It’s Harmontown. It’s awesome. It’s unique. Don’t miss a single week.

$10.
